Moshe David Rosanel
Originally from Paris, Moshe David Rosanel grew up in a very musical environment where singing played a significant role in the synagogue as well as in the home. His father, R’ Avraham Rosanel who, for over 30 years, serves as the Chazzan of the Agudas Hakehilos Synagogue in Paris, taught him to pray with fervor and warmth. Both his parents, hailing from musical families, imbued him with a rich and varied plethora of music genres. His grandfather used to recall that as a youngster in prewar Poland, due to poverty, stood behind one of the windows of the synagogue to listen to Moshe Koussevitzky giving a concert. On his mother side, his great grandfather was a composer before WW2 in Hamburg, Germany.
Moshe David learned the piano as a yougster and learned voice technique under former opera singer, Cantor Moshe De Rizinsky z"l from Antwerp, Belgium. He trained proffessionally by Cantor Rabbi Moshe Ginz, who’s experience in Israel, the United States and Canada expands over 40 years. Under his tutelage, he learned the “Bel canto” singing technique, achieving smooth merger between voice registries, strong voice control and fundamentals of Chazzanut. Moshe David's fluency in French, English, Hebrew and Yiddish has enriched the extent of his knowledge and abilities.
